2017-18 Season Stats
|Has phenomenal sniping ability, great puck skills and the speed to be a constant scoring threat from the wing position. Can also set up his linemates well when teams bear down on him.|
|Struggles in the defensive zone and lacks awareness when not on the attack. Lacks optimum size (5-11, 195 pounds) and strength. Takes some shifts off and lacks consistency in a big way.|
|Inconsistent, speedy scoring winger with a little upside.|
